Knockeen Hills Elderflower and Heather London 'Cut' Dry Gins, are both five-times distilled traditional style, super-premium brands. The exclusive Irish Whey distillate results in a totally unique and remarkably soft delivery of the spirit on the palate, and an outstanding smooth finish. This has achieved outstanding provenance. They are the only London 'Cut' Dry Gins produced, using Irish Whey dIstilled spirit.

2011 USA Beverage Tasting Institute Review. GOLD MEDAL 92 Points. Exceptional Rating. Clear. Attractive aromas of honeyed toasted pound cake, lemon pudding, celery pepper and dried flowers with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a vibrant, tongue-warming citrus custard, prickly pear, and floral talc finish. A lively and flavourful gin that will shine in cocktails.

2009 International Wine and Spirit Competition, SILVER MEDAL 47% vol.+ London Dry Gin category, together with only Tanqueray 10 and Finsbury Platinum. The I.W.S.C. Chair Judge's (Angela Reddin) comments were 'Clean pure silver white spirit. The nose has an intricate complexity, high toned key notes of dried flowers with a firm core of juniper, coriander seed and citrus zest. Full flavoured and wonderfully aromatic; delivered with a surprising delicacy and smoothness, the floral/meadow flower complexity kicks back on the finish. Clean, generous and very precise, a very well made spirit indeed'.

The natural botanicals selected, are steeped in the spirit for at least 24 hours, contributing to a very soft release of the spirit on the palette, and no trace of 'after burn' normally associated with gin. The botanicals listed in alphabetical order are:- Organic Angelica Root, Organic Coriander, Organic Juniper Berries, Natural Heather, and Organic Savory Powder.

I bought this for my Sister as she liked Gin & I must say she finds this much more refined that your supermarket usual brands, drinking it with slimline tonic but without the lemon. I don't like Gin myself but have tried it & could easily finish a G & T if they where all this quality. This comes in at 47.3% ABV but you wouldn't think so as it's so smooth.
